Isaac Butts had a career-high 41 points Friday, and the Georgia Military College Prep boys’ basketball team advanced in the GHSA Region 7-A tournament with a 77-46 win over Taliaferro.

With the win, Chris Barfield’s Bulldogs move on to the second round of the region tournament, to be held Wednesday. An opponent and venue has not been announced.

The Bulldogs went on a 14-6 run to start the game — including six points from both Butts and Vernon Andrews — but Taliaferro scored six unanswered points to end the first period and pull within four.

Three baskets by Butts to start the second extended the GMC lead to 10, and the Bulldog defense held Taliaferro scoreless for the first five minutes of the period. GMC only allowed five points in the frame while scoring 15 to take a 33-17 lead into the break.
